Peace?

Like, **** War, or like, I need a little peace and quiet?

Yeah...I like peace.  I like the concept.  But I don't know if I'm down with the whole Buddah, peace is a state of mind, new age perspective.  I wonder...MLK, Ghandi and Mother Theresa are the modern peace idols.  Sure, sure.  Jesus can still gather a crowd--but during their life times did they ever feel at peace?  How can one ever just get a little peace and quiet whenever their devoting their lives to end violence?  Maybe that's why they're so memorable.  They were able to find the peace within themselves to face and challenge the injustce and horrors in the world.

Did they find peace....I am not sure.But your story reminded me of a story i read the other day that reffered to Fra Giovanni "Letter to a Friend" .....No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present little instance.<br />
Take Peace!<br />
The gloom of the world is but a shadow.<br />
Behind it, yet within our reach is joy<br />
Perhaps these people were able to see past the gloom and find the joy.........
